Staff at Simmons Gainsford accountants in Uckfield left their desks last week to spend two days staining fences to help a charity.
The firm announced last month that they would be supporting Chailey Heritage Foundation by helping out with tasks such as painting and gardening and they lost no time in getting involved.
Caroline Otterheim, head of marketing at Simmons Gainsford Group said: “Staining the fences is the kind of task that needs to be done but might not have the highest priority for the small team of groundsmen.
“We are so happy that we were able to help out and it will make it look so much nicer for the children when they come back from their summer holidays.”
James Duggan, partner at Simmons Gainsford, said: “We are very pleased to be able to help a charity such as Chailey Heritage Foundation. Their work is truly amazing and inspiring. The days were a great team building exercise for us too.”
Rob Taylor, estate manager at Chailey Heritage said: “We are so grateful to the teams from Simmons Gainsford for all their hard work over the two days. The fences look great and it has transformed the whole area.
“Thank you very much to all those involved. It was an absolute pleasure having you here.”
Chailey Heritage provides education, care and transition services for children and young people with complex physical disabilities and health needs.
